LIFESAVING INFORMATION FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING DON'T EAT YOUR HEART OUT COOKBOOK

Joe Piscatella shows you how to make the critical lifestyle choices that can spell the difference between coronary disaster and a long, healthy, productive, life.

What health professionals say:

"If Choices for a Healthy Heart is as widely read as it deserves to be, cardiovascular surgeons may see fewer patients with coronary heart disease."

-Denton A. Cooley, M.D., Surgeon in Chief, the Texas Heart Institute

"Every so often a book is written that makes such an immediate and significant contribution to health and fitness that it becomes a standard. What The Complete Book of Running did for running and Type A Behavior did for stress, CHOICES has done for cardiac health.

--Barry A. Franklin, Ph.D., Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation at William Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, Michigan

"This is the single best source of practical information on cardiac health. By covering all of the key aspects of lifestyle-diet, exercise, stress, smoking, and attitude, Mr. Piscatella has created an understandable 'how-to' guide for living a healthy life. This book is a must for professionals, heart patients, and people concerned with prevention."

--Victor A. Froelicher, M.D., Co-Editor, The Journal of Cardiac Rehabilitation, Chief of Cardiology, Long Beach V.A. Medical Center, Long Beach, California

Meet the Author


Author Joseph C. Piscatella has been a keen observer of American eating habits since 1977, when emergency open-heart surgery at the age of 32 forced him to recognize the intimate connection between dietary habits and overall health. His successful recovery and determination to make adjustment in his own lifestyle and diet inspired a new career as an active proponent of healthy lifestyle changes. As president of the Institute for Fitness and Health, Inc. in Tacoma, Washington, he lectures extensively to a variety of clients, including medical organizations, corporations and professional associations, and is a consultant on major wellness projects for Fortune 500 companies, the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force. Cited in Time for their practicality and effectiveness, his seminars deal with the management of lifestyle habits to increase health, longevity and productivity. Mr. Piscatella is the only non-medical member of the National Institute of Health Cardiac Rehabilitation Expert Panel, which develops clinical practice guidelines for physicians. He is also a member of the Association for Worksite Health Promotion, the American Association of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, and the National Wellness Association.
